"I have been going to a workout place called Plex. It's near where I live. The other days I have been doing the SMU workout," stated Scott to PonyStampede.com. "I was about 180 to 183 last year. Now I'm about 6'1 and 190 pounds. I have also been really trying to work on my quickness and speed. I want to get my feet faster. "
When asked whether it was muscle or maybe some extra pounds of food, Scott just laughed and said muscle. At the rate he is going, C-USA running backs and receivers won't be laughing when the Houston Strake Jesuit product hits them.
"I'm just looking forward to getting out there and actually getting a chance to work. I haven't been on the field for a while," said the 2009 recruit. "My biggest goal is to just know the system front to back. It doesn't matter if I play right away. Red-shirting isn't that bad of a thing, but if they need me to play, I will be ready."
Like most incoming freshman to a college, Scott is a little nervous about setting foot on the Hilltop.
"I'm really excited and nervous to. I have some friends who are already going there, so that should help a little," said Scott. "Plus, I have one of my great friends Darius Johnson coming with me, so it should be fun."
One of the hardest things for a graduating senior football player, is to watch spring practices when he knows he will never put his high school jersey back on. Scott struggled with this in the spring, but had a unique opportunity that helped with the transition.
It was pretty hard watching this spring, but I was one of the counselors on the team, so it was nice to be still around the football program," said the future D-1 safety. "Being a counselor I have learned that I can maybe push myself a little harder. I push these guys quite a bit. It has really taught me what a coach goes through."
